N.H. Town Meeting results are going up now

The school modernization plan went down in Lebanon, and we’ve got more results going up at our Town Meeting 2018 keyword throughout the night.

A group of helpful #CornishNH residents help push the car of Ally Samuell, of #HanoverNH, up a slippery incline after Town Meeting at Cornish Elementary School earlier today. Samuell, a community organizer with the Sierra Club, was at the meeting to support an article petitioned by the Cornish Energy Committee to set a goal for the town to get 100 percent of its electricity from #renewable sources by 2030, and the same for all of its heating and transportation energy by 2050. The measure passed. ? Results from today’s #NH town meetings are currently going up at www.vnews.com as they are received, including from #LebNH, where a plan to modernize the city’s school buildings has failed. ? Find more in Wednesday’s Valley News. (Valley News – James M.

From the Upper Valley VT/NH Facebook page, Kate Barber writes:

Who needs Barber Strong Gear? I hate to admit it, but Tom may have been right, I think we ordered too much apparel. It seems a shame to keep them boxed up so we are going to be giving away all that we have left (and we have a lot). We have sweatpants, T-shirts, long sleeve T’s and hoodies in youth and adult sizes. You can get your Free Barber Strong gear at Big Green T’s in Lebanon, Stateline Sports in White River Junction, Meriden Deli Mart in Meriden NH or by contacting me. If you don’t live in the area, send me a PM of what you would like and I will drop it in the mail to you.

Folks are also leaving suggestions of where some of the clothing can be donated, such as David’s House. A very nice example of paying it forward. Here is Julie at her surprise welcome-home party after returning from a Boston hospital in February:
